Halloween Vocabulary – SMART notebook

Screen Shot 2014-10-30 at 5.31.27 AM
Here is another vocabulary activity created by my mother – She is a speech pathologist. Again using the CLFF model (don’t worry the first few slides quickly and clearly explain this) each halloween word is explained to students. Each word has two pages. The first pages has the word, a picture, and the sentences to go with CLFF. Each sentence is read when touched. The object moves when touched. The second page has again the word, and picture. Below this there is a video of the word, a sign language video and a button to hear the word again. Click below on Halloween Vocabulary.

Pumpkin Investigation – SMART notebook

Screen Shot 2014-10-29 at 11.18.42 AMWhile you are carving pumpkins this week why not turn the activity into a math/science experiment. Have students estimate and measure things like how many lines the pumpkin has, how many seeds, how tall, will it sink or float. Then each student can design their own pumpkin with the pre made shapes. Click below on Pumpkin Investigation.

Happy SMARTboarding,


Love this idea for gross motor, brain breaks and halloween fun. Super easy to implement. Get some big pumpkins with stems, get some wooden circles (michaels, dollarama) that are used for needlepoint and have students try to throw them onto the pumpkins.

Happy SMARTboarding,
